BEST DOCTOR AROUND !!!

Reviewed On 4/1/2022
Dr. Rezaee and his staff are exceptional. He is thorough and clear when explaining my health and what steps/tests are being taken. I believe that I can trust him with my life given he found, diagnosed, and removed my cancer and has a complete understanding of my medical history and what to look for to make sore my cancer has not returned. I would, and have recommended him to others as the best person for any care related to ENT.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.

As of December 31, 2016, Rod Rezaee did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
